Greg Taylor put up a post yesterday about the news feed I’ve created for New Wineskins online magazine. I had e-mailed a bunch of folks with the text he included there … and looking at it afterward, as well as seeing later how many folks had already incorporated it into their blogs, I was stunned at how full of faith they were:
I’ve come up with a news feed for the New Wineskins magazine that you can place once on your blog or web site, and forget about it . . . and it will be automatically updated as new articles and blog entries are added to the New Wineskins site.
If you’d like to add this feature to your blog or site, just copy and paste the line of code below into your blog template or the HTML of your web page.
When someone clicks on a link to an article or blog post from the feed, it will be opened in a new window, with your blog or site underneath. You can format it with font or style tags before and immediately after to give it the appearance you desire.
As some of you know, I’m going to be trying to help Greg Taylor out with some of the webmastering of the New Wineskins site as he takes on new duties at Garnett Road in Tulsa (where Wade Hodges serves). After four years of serving as managing editor of the magazine – and successfully moving it from a printed to an online subscription publication (with free-access areas) – Greg is committed to continuing to broaden its scope and focus to Restoration churches and beyond.
This news feed is one idea that Greg cleared right away, and if you’d like to help by posting this news feed, we’d be grateful for your help.
Thanks very much!
Nowhere in the text of the message I sent did I mention looking at the right side navigation bar of this blog or What Would Jesus Do Next? to see what it would look like.
Well, thanks to all of you who have figured out how to imbed that line of code into your templates or place it on HTML pages. And for those of you who didn’t happen to be on that first flight of e-mail recipients, here it is again:
Greg must have been in such a hurry to skip town that he forgot to convert those carets in the HTML of that code – so on his blog, the news feed appears instead!
Check the first comment under his entry for the corrected code as above.
